, but also republican ways. those of us who are old enough to cover the debate under president clinton, there was a republican plan submitted at the time that is the closest precursor to what the affordable care act is today. a lot of the aca came from middle-of-the-road and conservative republicans, and i think that reflects the president's view all along that -- we ought to build a consensus. republicans have fought this tooth and nail, through passage, through the many pointless repeal votes they have held, and then challenged it unsuccessfully in the supreme court and ran a national campaign on it, and it did not turn up their way. we hope in the spirit of everyone's is our to help the american people, republicans and democrats can join together to make sure the american people who have benefits available to them by law are getting the benefits that they deserve. that is what democrats did. democrats who opposed bush's medicare part d plan. once it was law, hopkins and democrats came to -- republicans and democrats came together to make sure that their constituents got the benefit

to us just utterly devastating. what does it look like on the ground? put it in some perspective for me. >> reporter: well, piers, it is quite simply a horrific situation. these people have been to hell and back. one lady told me it was worse than hell. to survive such a horrific storm surge and horrific typhoon, is horrible. but now these people are going through a second disaster. but they're now struggling to survive to get enough food and shelter. and of course, shelter. you can probably see behind me it is torrential rain here. the storm still coming through. luckily there are no heavy wind s because that could cause more injuries and damage behind me. it is a very desperate situation. more aid is needed. more organization is needed to get it to those people who need it. and there is a very grim task at the moment. a mass grave is being built down the road. we understand from the mayor that 244 bodies have been found in this area alone. they have another 600 bodies they know about, but have not been able to get to it. where we were walking down the road just on monday, there were m
